Expect more Quicksilver in X-Men: Apocalypse

New, 23 comments

One of the best parts of X-Men: Days of Future Past is going to get a lot more screen time in the upcoming final act of the trilogy, Apocalypse.

According to actor Evan Peters, Quicksilver, the young, loudmouthed mutant who can run faster than the speed of light, will have more than just a guest starring role in the new film.

Evans recently sat down with Collider to shed some light on just what audiences should expect to see this time around.

Unlike in Days of Future Past, where Evans had a total of maybe 10minutes on screen, his character has returned with "bigger, longer and more detailed sequences" that the actor described as fun and enjoyable.

"I think it's an amazing sequence that they put together," Evans said. "I think we shot for 22 days of second unit, working on the sequence, which is amazing. It's so cool to take that much time to make something like that really pop and really work."

While Evans confirmed there would be a lot more slow-motion scenes in Apocalypse, he couldn't say if they would include as many shenanigans as the first sequence did in Days of Future Past.

Apocalypse is currently in post-production and is scheduled to be released on May 27, 2016.
